Cast Added For The Hilary Duff Bonnie And Clyde Movie
It's been a good couple of months since we heard casting news about The Story of Bonnie and Clyde, the movie that will star Hilary Duff as the historical figure once portrayed by Faye Dunaway, and may ruin cinematic history in the process. In case you were hoping that meant the whole thing was off, no such luck-- Screen Daily is reporting that Thora Birch, Taryn Manning and Cloris Leachman have been added to the cast, and filming will start soon enough in the South.
They're not saying which characters the three ladies will be portraying, but presumably neither of them will start a feud with Dunaway the way Duff did when the project was first announced. Birch, of course, is well-remembered as the teenage daughter in American Beauty and Enid from Ghost World, but hasn't had a major movie role since the early part of this decade. Not sure if this will be the movie to put her back in the spotlight-- it might be best for all of us if it weren't. But until they delete the original Arthur Penn film in order to make the Hilary Duff version the only one that exists, we don't have to burn this Bonnie & Clyde at the stake.
